Excellent!

By the way, the TOO from 12/10/72 has a pair of almost proto-trance/jazzy jams that might warrant inclusion, though they're not at the end of the tune.

As you mentioned in that prior thread, the TOO from 8/22/72 also has an 'Allman'-flavored jam but it doesn't meet the length criterion, as it is quite brief (you do get to hear Bobby, all by his lonesome, strum a little Feelin' Groovy, though.)

And I sure hope that such a catalog of special jams can be expanded to include other years, as well.

Nice post!

Yeah, I didn't want to get into little brief jam fragments that didn't get developed.
But the 12/10/72 Other One is interesting because, when they're coming out of space, they play what is clearly a proto-Eyes jam, with Weir & Garcia both playing jazzy rhythm chords like in the early Eyes.

No plans to expand this catalog outside '72 for now.

Sounds good. I'll be sure to keep an ear out for any others.

Thanks again.
